New CAP Initiative

Exciting New CAP Initiative for Churches to Impact Our Communities

Dear Friends

You may have already been made aware of this exciting new CAP initiative to be launched in March 2013 but if not I wanted to inspire you about it and encourage you to get involved.

Christians Against Poverty is excited to announce the launch of CAP Job Clubs, a fresh way for our churches to engage with our local communities. Using the skills and knowledge built up over 16 years of delivering world class debt advice and financial education, CAP want to tackle one of the key causes of debt and poverty in our society; unemployment.

A few months ago Chris Neal, the Founder of GB Job Clubs, approached CAP for help to put some infrastructure in place to support his fledgling network of Job Clubs and wanted to ensure Jesus and the local church were at the centre of all they did, so he called CAP. With great excitement CAP sought God and felt that Job Clubs were a great fit with our mandate to empower churches to help lift people out of poverty, and so CAP Job Clubs was born.

We believe that the marriage of Chris’ innovation and experience with CAP’s organisational structure will see Job Clubs spring up in towns and cities across the UK. CAP Job Clubs will launch in Spring/Summer 2013.

CAP are looking for partner churches to help pioneer the CAP Job Clubs and have decided to offer this resource FREE of charge for the first year to all churches who are ready to launch by March 2013. The anticipated normal cost is in the region of £50/month

Please click on the link below, watch the message from John Kirkby and fill in the online form to enquire about how your church can be among the first to hear how you can support the long-term unemployed back to work and give them an opportunity to respond to the love of God.
